- Support for recognizing and excluding spurious location data from reports/maps. Its common for mobile phones to provide spurious locations due to errors from the service provider like google. This affects operation metrix calculations and workforce utilization information. Our algorithms now detect for such spurious issues, do retries to get better location and flag then.
- Now you can configure to exclude these locations in maps and reports.

- Eg if you intend to create a ticket for a site/customer, configure them to be on top and system reads rest of the data from master to view and create
